Notes

MR (Dick Latvala) > DAT > SoundForge (Jim Wise) > CD; extensively cleaned
up (see info file); via Primal Dead Latvala Tribute Tree (more
info
); d2t8 apparently bonus track of tuning (with slide whistle) from
11/7/69 (thanks to Barry Lasky for clue); note not the entire show, just
the "Picks"; flaws not on master, first copy (a): d1t04ÃÂ Dropout @
11:01; d1t06ÃÂ Dropout @ 00:27; d1t07ÃÂ Dropout @ 00:09, another
bump 1:37; d2t02ÃÂ Dropout/Slight Hesitation @ 05:34 (sounds similar
to a track ID error); flawed source went to abgd as well as etree; flawless
source (b) obtained by M. Parrillo, up by 11/30 though not at all sites; caution- new version had some track name/ordering mixups- see guide; note a third source (c) may be up too, no dropouts; covers;
note this show is now released as Dick's Picks 16- go buy it!

A worthy purchase, if you're interested in supporting the band. The Lovelight on DP16 is from 11/7, which you can still stream here on the archive.

Set 1 - You might want to skip the 9:00 Dire Wolf, as the entire thing is played twice in the same song for some reason - there are plenty of great '70 versions that don't feel like the band is rehearsing in front of a live audience. The first Cumberland, unfortunately, suffers as well. But the rest of the set is very fine, very Pig-laden: his schoolgirl is now......er......13! (Ron, you baaaad) Good Lovin' has that oh-so-light jazzy touch to the jam, and Easy Wind is sooooooo slooooooow and stony - THIS is them tapping right into that psychedelic rhythm, and when Pig busts out the harp, well now - everything just seems just right.

Set 2 is rather beyond words - it's every bit as good as it appears to be; one long suite with that Dark Star "envelope" crossing over at various times, some new instrumentals tried out that later would develop into familiar tunes, and a really hot Caution meltdown - Dick was right on the money with this selection.
